Just months after a federal judge decertified a class action suit charging retail giant Wal-Mart with complicity in janitorial contractors' exploitation of illegal aliens, a second attempt has been filed. Although the first suit failed to meet class action requirements, it was allowed to proceed on behalf of the 17 janitors listed as named plaintiffs. The new complaint is on behalf of 42 other janitors who are known to the plaintiffs lawyers but were not listed as named plaintiffs in the first case.
